Really great looking hostel, perfect central location and super clean. Kitchen is big and well-equipped. The pool is a nice area but not clean, I’m not sure I saw it cleaned the few days I stayed there. Not sure if I’d stay here again only because the room was so hot I could barely sleep. There’s no aircon and the fan barely worked. Staff were lovely though the place has potential.
